At the beginning of the weight gain, you can hardly notice the bulge in the belly. I do hide it well

I am a 32 year old wife & first time mother of twins, I have been over weight for the better part of my whole life, but I have gotton bigger than ever after I had my children. I feel the difference and I am doing something about it fight here-right NOW! I am looking for all the support I can get, so please don't hesitate to leave me any comments.

The background picture was taken when I was 22 years old, the only time in my life that I was not over weight. I placed it in the backgroud of my page, so that I wont loose focus on my goals.
I have started a team "NEVER BEEN SKINNY". I think that it is harder for me to loose the pounds because I have been overweight for the most part of my life. I have never watched my what I ate, or exercised. So this is all new for me. Please feel free to check out my team. I started it for those of us that have been over weight for more that 4 years.

Many tell me that I carry 220 lbs well, but I say I just HIDE 220 lbs well. lol
I have been hiding all my life, sucking in my belly, wearing big girl clothes, well I am tired of hiding. I am ready to peel off the layers, and finally become comfortable with my body.

It has been a few months since I started my weight lost journey. And I must admit, it has not been easy, but I also must admit that I thought it would be alot harder.

    emoticon again to the Detroit Area Diva team! The team has not had an active leader for a while. Although I am new (I joined in January), I know that we can all use help on our weight loss journey. The Detroit Divas team can help if we help each other. Please become an active part by visiting the team board often and posting your successes as well as your difficulties (we all have them). We can make this a strong team if we all participate. You do not have to go on this journey by yourself. Detroit Area Divas are here!! emoticon
